The Academy of Country Music Awards has shared the list of nominees for the 54th annual ceremony, set to take place April 7 in Las Vegas.

Chris Stapleton leads the pack once again with six nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year for From A Room: Volume 2 — he took home the award for best album and male vocalist last year. Up there alongside him with six nods is duo Dan + Shay, also nominated in the best album category as well as best duo and, of course, best song for the undeniably catchy “Tequila.” Additionally, Dan Smyers received three individual noms as a producer in the Album of the Year, Single of the Year, and Music Event of the Year categories.

Kacey Musgraves — who won Album of the Year at the Grammys earlier this month — also scored multiple nominations (five in total, including Album of the Year for Golden Hour), while Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha all received four nominations each. Country music legend and 16-time(!) ACM Award winner Reba McEntire will return to host the celebration live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
